Crinkle Cut Confetti

To make larger confetti, use a squeeze hole puncher. These hole punchers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The squeeze hole puncher takes a lot of the work out of your hands, meaning you will not get tired as quickly as you would using a regular hole puncher. To create your confetti, simply insert one sheet of paper into the hole puncher and squeeze the handles. If you are using crepe paper, this style of hole puncher works best.

Tip

  • If you plan to use your confetti to fill a balloon, it is best to use crepe paper as it folds easier than standard paper.

Round Confetti

To create traditional, round confetti use a punch circle. These come in a variety of sizes and are very easy to use. The punch circle works much better with thicker paper rather than crepe paper. With this hole punch you can stack 2-3 sheets to create more circles at once.

Tip

  • Make sure to use paper that is double-sided so that your confetti has pattern on both sides!
